Katrina Krive – Elementary co-Coordinator

I have been attending Grace South Bay for two years with my husband, Aaron, and two children, Eliana (3) and Joshua (2). I have eighteen years of experience working with students from PreK – 12 through church ministries, private tutoring, and school. I enjoy home making, handicrafts, library trips, baking, gardening, and reading with my kids.

Bex Ballinger – Elementary co-Coordinator

My family and I moved to the Bay Area from London U.K. almost two years ago now. We arrived as a four: my husband Dom, Sophie-Jayne (5) and Joshua (3) and shortly became a five with Teddy (18months). We are very grateful for the way in which Grace embraced and supported us through our cross continent move and arrival of our third child.

I am U.K. trained in Secondary Education which combines Middle and High school and taught English Literature and Drama for nine years in an all girls Christian school in South London. I also served in the children’s ministry in our church in Tooting, London, for many years, teaching all ages from 3 – 11yrs old. As well as teaching, sports are a real passion of mine. Dom and I met playing field hockey at university. I now really enjoy running and am doing my first marathon this coming Sunday in San Francisco!
